At midnight I was fast asleep but was woken to talking next to my bed. Talking that I started answering. It was one of the girls. Huh? It’s late. Huh? Wait! I stumbled out of the bed in the dark, over to the light switch. I had to see what I thought I was hearing. Kateri?! Kateri! She started laughing at me and told me that JJ was in the kitchen. I went running out and sure enough! They were both standing in my house! What? Who? How?
They are here until Monday and then they both head back. What a surprise!
I got up early, went to Starbucks for coffee (and to surprise my sister with the sight of Kateri) and then came home and have been working away like a busy lil bee. It’s funny the mode I go into when everyone is home. I’m instantly a better cook, better cleaner, better M.O.M. I whipped up a lunch of grilled chicken sandwiches, with all the fixins (grilled onions included) for 12. It seems that whenever Kateri and JJ are home, the house becomes full of guests, the table becomes full of game playing, music playing, song singing, hungry folks. I love it! I LOVE a full house! I LOVE to entertain! I love putting out the food and having a ton of people show up to eat it! Somehow time stops a little bit while they’re here and we manage to grab ahold of extra moments. I don’t know how to explain it, but I’ll take it!
